Now that salons are open once again, we're all looking forward to getting our hair done, so why not take the chance to go for a bold new look?
And with inspiration for our new hair colour coming from an unlikely place, it's a trend we can get on board with.
This delicious strawberry-hued hair trend takes its inspiration from M&S's iconic Percy Pig, and features glorious pastel pink with darker pink tones.
A mix of both light and brighter pinks, this wonderful new take on pink hair features a subtle two-toned effect.
AKA the perfect trend for summertime, when we'll all be able to meet our friends without lockdown restrictions being in place.

So how do you achieve the Percy look on your own hair?
Trichologist and hair expert Simone Thomas, founder of the multi-award winning Simone Thomas Salons, gave Tyla the lowdown.
Simone said that when it comes to this hair colour, the look can only really be achieved in a salon, as getting the pastel look is not just a case of putting a pastel colour on your hair.
She said: "Be prepared for a minimum of 3-5 hours in the salon, possibly in more than one session.
"After making the decision to go that beautiful pastel pink colour, your stylist will need to use bleach to lift your hair as light as possible.
"This process alone could take a few sessions depending on how dark your hair is to start.
"After your hair has lifted through the stages of red, orange and yellow and you've reached that perfect blonde then you can look at your pastels."
Simone adds: "It's always best to do this professionally as often those bespoke pastel colours you see are a mixture, a little of this and a little of that."
And to keep your hair in tip-top condition?
Simone suggests using a pigmented shampoo, such as the Davines Alchemic range.
As well as keeping your pastel hair fresh, pigmented shampoos will "also keep your hair in the best possible condition", Simone adds.
"In the range you can get your hands-on pink, coral and red for your pastel pink hair."
